I thought they could use the system where there is a landing from each floor to the hoist.

I couldn't imagine they have that much space in the core for construction hoists.

They can't do that. The outter cladding is too complex and there is no actual "building" for the hoist to connect to. With that said the construction lifts are in the core. As for space, there is plenty of it in there. The core of this building is roughly 30m by 30m. Huge compared to most buildings. Each core "shaft" is more than 30ft in each dimension (while the average elevator is 10x10 inside). Plenty of space.

if this is the case ,surely all buildings with cores could be done with lifts in side ? no need for outside lifts for the workers, getting in the way of the cranes etc ?

Almost every tower has it's lifts inside the core.

Most if any don't have the construction lifts inside, most climb along the side of the building

I have never seen this done before either, which prompted my question in the first place.

However, if there is indeed that much space in each shaft, why not put them inside. It just delays outfitting the shafts for passenger elevators.

Yeah, well, as explained, it can't be done otherwise

I sense that photographs cannot do justice to this structure.

Not all cores have a footprint this big. And you forget that a lot of skyscrapers have cranes in their core during construction

Looks like outer curtain wall construction for the first segment will be completed within the next week or so. I suppose cladding will commence before curtain wall construction starts on the second segment?

I hope somebody has been taking timelapse photos from the same spot. A weekly photo frequency would be enough.
